Oscar Wilde Anti Fox Hunt Royal Albert Teapot
UK delivery £3.50 - Free delivery on orders over £40!
Traditionalists will be having a fit at your tea table when you pour them a cuppa from this!
The teapot is an unused blank from the classic Royal Albert Old Country Roses, decorated with ripped up transfers of traditional hunt scenes and quotes from Oscar Wilde. Plenty to chat about there!
'The Unspeakable in pursuit of the Uneatable' - Oscar Wilde's witty opinion on fox hunting.
Despite the passing of The Hunting Act 2004, and overwhelming public support for it, fox hunting has continued much as before, with hunts bypassing the law by claiming to follow ‘trails’ – scent-based trails based on fox urine. Monitors say that only in very rare cases are trails ever laid, and hunts are simply doing what they can as they wait for the Hunting Act to be repealed.*
Decorated with traditional fox hunting scene transfers originally used to commemorate the English ruling classes from Mulder and Zoon, Amsterdam. Inside is a cheeky fox flipping the bird, by renowned Bristol graffiti artist Sepr.
The handle reads the anarchist slogan 'No Lords No Masters'.
On the base another quote from Wilde: 'Disobedience in the eyes of any one who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion'
Decorated by Bev Milward, this piece is unique by nature and very collectable.
